With seven weeks to go before new partial exemption rules for NHS bodies go live, are you ready?

In October HMRC issued its NHS Statement of Practice (SoP) document regarding Partial Exemption, setting out that HMRC will no longer accept certain practices from 1st April 2024 (our detailed analysis of the SoP can be found here).

What does this mean for my Trust?


In summary NHS Bodies will need to apply a partial recovery each month in addition to the partial restriction already undertaken.  Compliance with the rules is mandatory.  For most NHS bodies this means putting additional procedures in place – complying will in turn create additional burdens on already stretched finance teams.   In many cases, Trusts simply do not have the expertise in house to comply with the rules and have limited time to upskill their team to be compliant before 1st April 2024.

Main considerations


  1. Do you have a copy of your Partial Exemption Special Method approval letter from HMRC?
  2. Have you been applying a monthly restriction for COS VAT recovery and a monthly provisional claim for trading input VAT?
  3. Are you up to date in completing historic LPA’s and was the most recent year’s LPA included on the correct VAT return?

If you have answered no to any of the above questions, then your organisation may not be compliant with HMRC and with less than seven weeks to go, time is running out to get compliant, meaning there is an increased risk of HMRC issuing penalties.
